And I have the pictures to prove it!
There was a bit of a problem when I arrived: the table they assigned was in the doorway where vendors were entering to set up, meaning *I* couldn't set up, but the convention organizer Scott found a table available where the person had relocated to another group area (some vendors work as a team at various cons).
But once I got everything set up, and the doors opened to the public, the place got busy.
|Either bring a basket of candy to draw a crowd,|
or make a special offer.
The offer itself didn't attract people: I had buyers
refuse the coffee mugs. Sigh.
And oh boy did I get busy.
I sold eight books this con. Personal record. Previous attendance I had many three at most, probably two books sold all day. EIGHT today. I feel like I can take on the whole Empire myself. And each of the book volumes of Strangely Funny went home with eager readers. I am now officially out of Strangely Funny Volume I.
I had so many people stop by my table - between the busy hours of 11 AM to 3 PM - that I barely had any time to circle around and get pictures.

promoting more of his wrestling comics, as well as a

|EVERYBODY knows Squirrel Girl!!!|
The crowd seemed about the same as last year's, although not as many cosplayers this time. It was rainy weather today - a cold front blowing across central Florida, yes it DOES get cold here - so that may have affected costumers avoiding the rain.
Thanks all, those who attended, and I hope to have something new - a nice fantasy or sci-fi novel - for you for next year's con!
